Running the 350 spartan, have a question

I installed the 350 tune this morning to try it out (awsome) but now I'm trying to get out of it and go to the 275 but the only tune listed in my dashdaq is the 350. Even tried my back up SD card and same thing. Any ideas?

Another note,,, did a trip yesterday with the 310, a lot of back roads etc got 12.5 mpg (hand calculated). Was going to try the 275 today on a similar trip to check milage (cant get back to it as stated above) so I'm running the 350 have been 58.2 miles so far and i'm reading 26.0 on the lie o meter. the highest I've ever seen on it before is 22.1, hand calculated to 15.9. So I am curious what my mpg is going to be at the end of the day.

Thanks, Mike

suncoast is actually paying spartan to do this. So that you will blow out your tranny stuck on the 350 and have to get a suncoast.

Just kidding. Give Mick a ring this is his department. Also your tunes should be saved on spartans website right?

Just what I was thinking,, Donna did give me the stern warning about running this tune and tearing up the tranny

All of my tunes are showing on the SD card if I put it in my computer,,, Strange. Mick has already gotten back to me and we are working on it. Spartan Tech support has been top notch in my book.

Yeah, that's junk Jeff. You should get Cobb's to sponsor a Sun Coast setup for you.

Mike,

How does it run and how is the drivability?

Much faster than the 310?

Thanks for the info!

Mike
